Memorable Manitobans: Gordon Ogilvie Woodman (1855-1928)

Businessman.

Born at Toronto, Ontario on 4 November 1855, brother of J. Woodman, he came to Manitoba in the employ of the Merchants Bank. He later went into the insurance business, initially in partnership with G. W. Girdlestone and later on his own, eventually becoming a manufacturer’s agent. He retired about 1921. He was a founding member of the St. Charles Country Club. He died at Winnipeg on 22 March 1928 and was buried in the St. John’s Cathedral Cemetery.
